A little drying, fruity, oaky, leathery - like new shows. This is tasty, I really like it. Read more

This is fairly complex on the nose with lovely carob, chocolate, pencil lead and wood spice aromas all nicely setting off the black cherry fruit. Full and rich in the mouth, this shows some pretty sophisticated flavors of black fruit, plum skin and a touch of earth, all supported by nicely integrated toasty and vanilla wood flavors. There’s a touch of extra tannin adding some dryness to the palate, but this is rich enough to handle it well. On the back end, nice herbal suggestions emerge adding complexity that fades quickly on the slightly chalky if modest, long plum and wood spice finish. 88pts

Bitter tannins and hints of oak chips


Winemaker's Notes:

The Jacuzzi family estate vineyard located in the southern Sonoma Carneros region produces grapes that exhibit the classical fruit-forward flavors of Merlot. Careful handling, from the vineyard through fermentation brings out the wine's complex layers and silky tannins. A taste of chocolate and flavors of juicy cherries is followed by a hint of green olives.
